Default Wagon for Grandkids

I have two Grand Daughters, so I had to make two wagons. Both are made 100% from Walnut. The tongue is made up from layers of 1/8" strips, bent and glued in a form that I made. Did not have to steam bend. The handle on the end of the tongue was copied from an old antique shovel that was in my garage. The wheels have a rubber fan belt to serve as the "rubber on the road". The racks are removable. Since these pictures were taken, I learned that the tongue was too long, so I have shortened them. The last thing I did was use all brass hardware to assemble the wagons. This is not my design. A friend of mine had so plans, so I copied them.

Nice job on the wagons. I do see where the tongue was too long for them to be used by a child riding on his own.

Those are some fancy wagons, Frank. Nicely done.

Those are beauties. Nice wagons too. Am I seeing things or are the wheels wood?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Those are things of beauty, Frank. Maybe the only all Walnut wagons in existence. Heirlooms they are!
